There’s a timely new landmark near 10th and E. John —
as long as the sun’s out IT’S A CLOCK! We found this work crew installing a large “sundial clock” on the side of the overhauled Holiday Apartments Tuesday afternoon. We covered Capitol Hill Housing’s work to refurbish the building here.
The idea behind the clocky sundial clock, according to CHH’s Betsy Hunter, is that as commuters run down E. John to catch their bus (or the streetcar come 2013 or the light rail train come 2016) they will be able to check the time. We might have suggested a rainwater filled hourglass. But that would be depressing. Even though IT’S A CLOCK!
For a pick-me-up, mark your calendar for a July 8th celebration of the rejuvenated Holiday hosted by CHH.
